the country. i thought this was a very well orchestrated convention with michelle obama giving us more insight into barack obama the man. followed by bill clinton talking about the obama record on the economy and trying to bring people together. and then teeing it up for president obama to talk about what's next. and i thought that was very powerful. >> but you know, mo, the first lady did do a great job in her speech. bill clinton did an amazing job as well. the criticism of the president whilhe set certain goals and said this is how many js i want to create, this is what wae concerned,he environment is concerned, he didn't go into specifics and lay out how he's going to achieve those goals, mo. thatas folks. and th were disappointed he didn't use that venue to do it. >> well, look, ts speech was really the first stop in the general election campaign. and this -- i don't believe -- i know there's a lot of people wondering what kind of bounce either side is going to get. i don't believe there is going to be much bounce for either side because i believe this is going to be a continuous conversa

for barack obama. some of the rather key ones is because he chose michelle as his wife. >> that was very sensible i think, yes. no, i think that she is a perfect partner for him. she is very strong. she's sort of balances, healthy, and practical firmness with gentleness and nurturing and she's a terrific mother and that is enormously important. >> you know barack better than most people. what will he be feeling? a lot of pressure? does he get nervous? >> i don't think he's nervous. i think he's very prepared. i think the speech is going to be great. and i think, you know, he's probably stretching his long limbs and excited to address the crowd. >> better than bill clinton's? that's the key question. >> i think he'll be different. everyone serves their purpose. michelle was about storytelling. about helping us to kind of frame the campaign issues and deeply, you know, loving intimate ways and bill clinton was about gaining perspective. on the last four years. and i think my brother is going to be about looking ahead. >> i think the crowd rather liked what you've just been saying. it's all

say all of them i mean president obama, first lady michelle obama, vice president joe biden, and his wife dr. jill biden will all be going to a campaign event in new hampshire. that's on friday. for the weekend they split up. president obama is off to florida for saturday and sunday campaign events. vice president biden is off to ohio for the weekend fo events there. you know, gary, it's all about momentum building on momentum right after the convention, wasting no time hitting the campaign trail. it's something you saw mitt romney his running mate obviously do the last few days since their convention. president obama and joe biden will do the same. >> how are the preps going right now in charlotte? are people already starting to arrive? >> yeah. we've seen some people filing in. by and large most of them journalists and members of the media setting up, preparing for the week. there are some delegates, some guests that have been filing in as well, security preparations obviously are about to start. we know that they'll be erecting the perimeter around the entire border around the eve

of barack obama's first-term record, and they are deploying him now in swing states, even more than michelle obama, he's probably the biggest asset they have. but life is long. you never know when you're going to end up, that these two men are now embracing to this extent. >> life is really long. >> you know, the president got a bounce at the convention, and it's arguable that clinton played a big part in that. we have this new pew research center poll that i found real estate interesting. it showed, when they were asking, what was the highlight of the democratic convention, 29% bill clinton's speech, 16% said the president's speech, and michelle obama's speech was at 15%. so does that also mean that there is a downside to having president clinton -- >> oh, you mean overshadowing -- you know, he -- everybody knows hays not the candidate. i think he's a great character witness for the candidate. i think there was a dangerous dangeat the convention of that kind of a result, because you want your candidate to shine, not the person who is testifying on your behalf to shine. but i think right now

. i think the president and his family have already -- there they go. president obama and michelle obama boarding the plane taking off for portsmouth, new hampshire where of course president obama will hit the campaign trail. that is where dan lothian is already waiting for the president to arrive. so i'm sure the white house has already put out a statement on this jobs report. what's it saying? >> this is not the kind of numbers that would really put wind in the sails of the president as he bounces out of the democratic national convention. i've heard from two officials who tell me the president will in fact address the jobs numbers during his first stop here post the dnc convention here in new hampshire. so he will be addressing those job numbers. we'll be listening for what he has to say. we heard from the president's economic adviser who said in a statement in part, quote, while there is more work, there remains to be done, today's employment report provides further evidence that the u.s. economy is continuing to recover from the worst downturn since the great depression going

pictures were published of the wife of president obama. i think michelle obama would take a different view about pictures of her topless than she might about someone on a beach in miami. i think that's the key difference. >> well, some might argue and probably very few, but some might argue that even if you're in a private home, is it ever wise to go outside of that home and take your top off? >> i don't think anyone would disagree with that. i have worked for celebrity clients for over 20 years. if any celebrity client came to me and asked me whether it was ever wise to take their top off in a public place anywhere, i would say absolutely not. so i think kate, the duchess of cambridge was unwise to do that. i think, however, that the punishment is inappropriate. it does not seem to me that justifies a worldwide set of pictures on the basis of and moments in discretion where she thought she was safe and where she thought she was private. >> well, it just comes on the heels of the prince harry scandal and the nude pictures taken of him in a private hotel room. >> well, i think this is absol
